As the London 2012 Olympic Games approaches an exhibition about the science behind sport.
How many hours of training does it take to win a gold medal? Will a shark skin swimming suit really make you swim faster? And where would you draw the line between fair play and downright cheating? Beautiful Games is a family-friendly exhibition created by Museums Sheffield in partnership with Sheffield Hallam University which answers these questions and many more.
Welcoming over 400,000 visitors through its doors every year, the V&A Museum of Childhood in London\'s Bethnal Green houses the Victoria and Albert Museum\'s collection of childhood-related objects and artefacts, spanning the 1600s to the present day.
The collection includes toys - including dolls, dolls\' houses, puppets and teddy bears - games, childcare, clothing, furniture and art and photography. In addition, the Museum runs a dynamic programme of temporary exhibitions and displays, a wide variety of activities, events and workshops for adults and families, outreach projects in hospitals and the local community, and an award-winning programme for schools.
